Itinerary and variant of the 4 Peaks Alta Badia route

From the village of Badia (1324 m) take the La Crusc/Santa Croce lifts up to the La Crusc/Santa Croce sanctuary (2045 m) at the foot of the Sas dla Crusc mountain where path no. 7 starts, which after 2.8 km and 1:30 hours of walking leads to the Ju dla Crusc ridge (2612 m). Continue for 1 hour for 1.9 km on path no. 7B to reach the Sas dla Crusc (Sasso Santa Croce mountain, 2907 m). The second peak is a short distance away: after 1.6 km and about 45 minutes of walking you reach the Piza dales Diesc (Cima Dieci mountain, 3026 m). The last section involves a short via ferrata. Return along the same path no. 7B until you are back at the Ju dla Crusc ridge.

From this point on, two different route options are possible for reaching the other two peaks.

Important information: we inform you that during the summer 2019 the chairlift La Crusc that starts from the middle station (1850 m) and leads to the church (2045 m) is closed due to reconstruction work. It is therefore necessary to take into consideration a short additional track to cover on foot, lasting about 20 minutes.

Starting at the Ju dla Crusc ridge (2612 m), continue on path no. 7 and then no. 12 via the Forcela Medesc (2533 m) where the path is exposed and recommended only for more experienced rock climbers, until after 3:30 hours (8.0 km – ascent 713 m – descent 645 m) you reach the summit of the Lavarela (Lavarella mountain, 3055 m). A further major effort is required to reach the last summit via path no. 12B which after 1 hour and a last section of via ferrata (1.8 km – ascent 128 m – descent 194 m) leads to the summit of the Conturines mountain (3064 m), the highest of the 4 peaks, which requires considerable technical skills, strength and character.

The adventure is not yet over even after the 4 peaks have been climbed: another 3:15 hours remain to cover 9 km of route to the Fanes/Ju dal'Ega meadows (2157 m), first on path no. 12B then on no. 11, which leads to the Col de Locia (2069 m) mountain and finally to the Capanna Alpina mountain hut (1720 m), where there is a hut, ample parking and a taxi service.

This route has a total duration of 11 hours, with a total distance of 25.40 km, a total climb of 1969 metres and a cumulative descent of 2293 metres.

Starting at the Ju dla Crusc ridge (2612 m), continue on paths no. 7 and then no. 12 in the direction of the Fanes plateau, passing by the Lavarella and Fanes mountain huts. Then take path no. 11 which leads to the Lé de Limo lake and the Gran Fanes mountain hut (2102 m) until you reach the little Ju dal'Ega ridge (2157 m). From here you continue 4.6 km upwards on path no. 12B for 2:30 hours until you arrive first at the summit of the Lavarela (Lavarela mountain, 3034 m) and, after a final section which involves a via ferrata, you reach the summit of the Conturines mountain (3064 m).

From this point the path returns to that of itinerary no. 1. To complete the challenge, another 3:15 hours are needed to cover 9 km of path towards the Fanes/Ju dal'Ega meadows, first on path no. 12B then on no. 11, which leads to Col de Locia (2096 m) mountain and finally to the Capanna Alpina mountain hut (1720 m), where there is a hut, ample parking and a taxi service.

The tour with the variant has a total duration of 14:15 hours, with a total distance of 34.50 km, a total climb of 2396 metres and a cumulative descent of 2718 metres.
